Talavera
 
 
 
 

 

This is our boat Talavera, a 55 feet long wooden boat designed by Richard Gustav Furuholmen. She was built in 1942 and used originally as an Intelligence boat for use in the Norwegian fjords. After the war she was used as a watch boat for the Air force during shooting exercises and so on. Later she was being used as a pilot boat before she ended up in the Military system again. She was retired in late 80ties and has been a pleasure craft since then.
